The water is heated to boiling, remove from heat and add black tea, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon and black pepper. Allow to stand without covers about 4 minutes, stirring 2-3 times. The tea is filtered and returned fire. Add the milk and sugar and stir until dissolved. If necessary, it may be additionally added sugar. Tea is served warm.

my favorite tea

recipe is nice, but needs minor adjustments. Tea really has the flavor of Indian masala tea, but 4 minutes without boiling aroma of spices is not strong enough. I think that the water can be reduced. Also, all products can be mixed and cooked together. Indian tea is quite sweet, but it's a matter of taste. For a stronger flavor, spices can be ground and before you put in the tea. I know, in India do not put whole grains and twigs.
I had black pepper and put pink, although not quite the same, but I think that even without pepper spices will suffice.
